Setting up subject tags

In Surpass, a subject is where you create and manage items for use in tests. Subjects can hold folders and sub-folders of items, allowing for flexible organisation of your test content. You can also upload media to your subject’s media library for use in its items. A subject is associated with at least one centre. Any tests created in the subject can be scheduled at the associated centre(s).

You can assign tags to subjects that allow you to categorise and sort subjects. This can be used to filter a large amount of subjects when scheduling tests. You can create subject tags in the Subjects screen of Setup.

This article explains how to set up subject tags in the Subjects screen of Setup.
